Wanted one and missed the window but now it's a bit out of my budget, c'est la vie.
Honestly, in the end, it was about profit, as greedy as it may seem. After all fee's, fuel, shipping costs, equipment costs etc etc. After about 3 months of work, that was a whole lot harder than i ever imagined it being, all the time spent answering email, i was probably earning a "wage" of less than $1 an hour, which unfortunately i cant live on.
Friends and people in the community encouraged me to increase the price to almost $60, but i didn't feel comfortable with that, so i made it $50, with "bulk buy" (2+) discounts, I still don't feel comfortable with $50 in reality, but that price gives me a good margin to be able to live too.
I never originally did it for profit and to make me loads of money, i did it because it was something i wanted to do to give back to the community, but in the end it just ate way more time than i was expecting.
